How does it feel to be one of the 40,000?

In Cuenca, estimates are that there are about 40,000 people who live on less than $2 per day. COVID restrictions have made the situation worse for many. They struggle to meet basic food needs, get medical care, pay rent, the list goes on. Basics that we take for granted every day.

This week thanks to a generous donor we were able to replace mattresses and fumigate the apartment for a mother of three who had a bedbug infestation. We are providing oxygen support for three premature babies. We are supporting thousands with food who depend on us for the basics.

At Hogar de Esperanza (Home of Hope), our approach is very effective. With our partners from local universities, businesses such as Supermaxi, hospitals and others we have one of the largest integrated programs in Cuenca, providing medical, food, clothing, and other supports. Our team of university students visit people in their homes and assess how best to meet the needs. Every day our team provides life-saving support to many, and we can do more!

How can you help? Drop off any items you no longer need or call us to arrange pick up. Your financial support is always appreciated. You can visit us at the corner of Juan Montalvo and Sucre from 9am to 5pm. Call or email us. You can make a donation at: or for other donation options. Together, lets continue to support those in need in our city. Thank you for your support.
